US pack designer Osprey, have expanded their biking/hiking hydration pack range. Here are two we like:
Raptor (Men’s) & Raven (Women’s) series is Osprey’s best fitting and fully featured mountain biking pack designed for the serious rider. Unique to the Raptor/Raven 14 & 10 litre packs, are the newly designed bike-specific, wing-shaped contouring harnesses that give maximum stability and distribute the load evenly. The flexible Hydraulics 2.5 litre reservoir accommodates natural riding positions, with the new lightweight sternum strap magnet attachment giving you easy access to mouthpiece every time you need to hydrate.
The Siskin (Men’s) & Salida (Women’s) series offer many of the high-performance features of the Raptor/Raven, but are designed to suit any outdoor activity from biking to hiking – where hydration is a must. What sets Siskin/Salida 12 & 8 litre packs apart is the new Biostretch shoulder harness, it keeps the pack stable over technical terrain and won’t pinch when your pack is fully loaded. The U-zip main compartment opens wide for easy packing while a separate compartment holds an included 2.5 litre reservoir with direct-zip access.
RAPTOR/RAVEN PACK 14 / 10 RRP: $199.95 / $179.95
SISKIN/SALIDA PACK 12 / 8 RRP: $159.95 / $139.95
